It’s safe to say that Tudor can longer be regarded as a “poor man’s Rolex” after the latest sale from Heritage Auctions. The auction house has just sold an incredible Tudor 7924 Big Crown Submariner for a vintage watch sale record of $162,500 USD. As the little brother to Rolex’s 6538 Sub (also know as the James Bond Sub, made famous by Sean Connery’s portrayal in Dr. No) the 7924 was a watch that largely attributed to Tudor’s successful 2012 diving watch revival — inspiring the introduction of the Heritage Black Bay model; its direct references can be seen in the large un-guarded crown, gilt-style dial, and bold red triangle.

It’s crazy to think that just only five years ago, this watch reference from 1958 (albeit not this exact example) could be found just South of $40K USD. What time to be a vintage watch collector.

In other news, Christie’s is to be the first to auction artwork created entirely by artificial intelligence.
